Rug Inspiration

Rugs, especially oriental rugs have a certain mystery to them. Each rug has a story; perhaps the symbols portrayed on them do not even have significant meaning, but the stories behind each weaver, the technique, the history - that is the magic. Mesopotamia, Egypt, the Middle East and Asia are the countries where these techniques and traditions originated from. There is some evidence that the weaving of pile rugs were present even before 2,000 BC.

It's perfect for creating spaces, making a practical space interesting and defining the style of a space.


And if, like me, you can't afford an oriental rug, there are multiple rugs available that could create the same feel.

I have this woven rug in my room - a pop of colour and some texture.

It even makes for a perfect back drop for this adorable fluff.

Definitely a must-have in any bohemian home.

Featured here are some silver rings in my treasure chest. I don't leave the house without at least three of them everyday.

The asymmetry of this ring makes it so unique. The stone is a dark green stone, which I would guess is malachite. This was handmade by Keshia Lee Codron from Amethyst. Definitely my favourite ring.

Quite a bulky ring but very comfortable. These rings might have been permanently attached to my fingers - no one would be surprised. Multiple times I have left the house without rings, only to run back because something didn't feel right.

In 2012 I travelled to Swaziland with my parents, and we ended up in an artist's town in the Free State, Clarens (South Africa). It's one of those quaint towns with multiple craft and vintage shops. In the main street, the Mona Lisa Garment Gallery is situated - this is where I bought this vintage ring. Filigree jewellery is not as popular as it used to be - few artist actually still use this technique. I would love to know the history behind this ring.

If you have any idea which stones these are, let me know, I would love some more opinions. Also, if you are a jeweller, or own a few precious rings of your own, share it with us.

The Queen of Bohemians

Rock goddess Stevie Nicks - wearer of feathers, top hats, flowing dresses and the creator of magic - is The Queen of Bohemians. Could anyone argue with that? She sings of Gypsies, Crystal Visions, Sorcerers, Street Angels. She is a cosmic gypsy. A vision of the bohemian idea.

"She is like a cat in the dark
and the she is the darkness"

"She rings like a bell in the night"

"She rules her life like a bird in flight"

"So I'm back to the velvet underground
Back to the floor I love,
To a room with some lace and paper flowers
Back to the gypsy that I was"
